That's what worries me about these things John, how much people confuse the internet with the real world  :-\

It's not real folks, it's the internet!*

You got it! I actually had to defend myself to another person because of refusing his friends request. I explained I did not like him in High School I do not like him now. I have no problem with most people but I really dont like this person so why pretend I do.

I was having a conversation (in the real world, using language) the other day about this very point. During my life. I have met people I like to stay in touch with, and plenty that I don't. Those that fall into the first category, I have their e-mail address or phone number or maybe go out for a drink with every now and then. The folk that fall into the second category however, I am blissfully unaware of (and that probably works for them too).

In Facebook, people seem to forget that neither of you have bothered to be in touch for 20 years, and that there's probably a good reason for that. It seems that it's a competition to get the most "friends", even if they're not friends at all.

I rejected one last week (on linkedin.com actually, not facebook) from somebody I fired for being the most obnoxious person I'd ever worked with. When I did the deed, they called me some names that I had to look up in a dictionary, made various claims about my parentage and even threatened me with a visit from their friends to administer a kicking  :o

Now they want a job reference from me  ::) Incredible.

@Nomad -> Yes I see the irony in typing all of this into an internet forum  :think:

Dave this guy used to like to bop his girlfriends around. I know we all joke about it here, and I have done my fair share on Natalie, but I cant stand people who hit women and kids. I feel they are cowards and serve no purpose in society.

I find it funny how one of his ex GF defended him.

@Nomad -> Yes I see the irony in typing all of this into an internet forum  :think:

Lets see, I have been out of touch with a lot of old friends because I now live halfway around the world from where I used to... so it's kinda easy to say there's a reason that you haven't been in touch for years... usually for me it's the long distance phone bill that deters me... that and I'm a lazy bugger (Def can vouch for me I'm sure :P)

I found Facebook to be a nice place to catch up with family, some old friends, ex-girlfriends, old workmates and old schoolmates... on the other hand I have rejected a few people who are little more than friend of a friend...

To think, without the internet, I wouldn't know were Def is or vise versa, and we've been friends for about 19 years or so... (holy! it's been that long already!?)

Has it been 19 years?  Crap, no wonder I'm old and fat....

I like Facebook, as it's given me the opportunity to look up some people I have wondered about but haven't seen in years.  My father was in the military, and we moved around often enough- although not as much as many families did.  Still in all, there were a great number of new faces every year, and while I will probably never remember them all (or indeed most of them) it's still nice to see what some of the folks you used to know are up to these days.  And, it's also nice to join certain groups, like the one for the base in Manitoba that I mostly grew up on, and was probably the happiest time in my life- at the risk of sounding pathetic, probably the closest I really had to a "back home." 

And, like Whoey says, if it hadn't been for Facebook, I probably wouldn't have known he was coming back to NS to visit his family until after the fact... in which case there may not be nearly as many upgrades and new features here as there have been in the last 6 months or so.

Still, Facebook is like a multitool- just because you have one doesn't mean you aren't still an idiot....
